I worked at Systemax full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It is perfect for a first job because it helped me learn how to do a job even though I hated it.

Cons

Low pay mostly commission. They tell you can make a lot of money, but that is not true. It is extremely difficult. You are competing with people within the same branch and with several branches around the country. There tag system is terrible. Vacation/sick time is a joke. I can go on and on for this company.

Advice to Management

Stop treating your employees like children and/or cattle.

    I worked at Systemax full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New leadership seems to have potential. For a large company, there is the ability to standout by doing good work.

    Cons

    - Culture is terrible; it's not fun to work here
    - There is no performance management system
    - More methods management vs. results oriented management
    - Unprofessional with lack of good talent

    Advice to Management

    The ownership of the company (Leeds) need to allow their local business unit executives to lead without interference or creating unecessarry politics.

    The culture needs fixed, top talent needs acquired, and brand needs figured out... before Amazon completey eats all of your lunch.
